My money is that he'll go buy as cheap a rifle as he can and still wish for more. To my mind if a guy can't swing a full custom rifle, assembling one based on a savage that will fit what your after is money far better spend than to be left wishing for more, and assembling a rifle doesn't have to be done all at once you can spread it out to absorb the costs easier.
Plus one here I'm slowly building a Stevens 223 varmint rifle and its so much fun watching your groups just keep getting smaller and smaller ;-)

Right now I have lapped the bolt and lugs installed a riflebasix trigger put rifle in a stockys long range thumbhole stock pillared and glass bedded. Next well be a biggie new barrel and recoil lug and then new one piece game reaper mount and vortex scope.

I do have a question for you pro rifle builders is haveing the action trued and blueprinted a need to thing or a want to?????


P.S. as of right now I have less than $600 in my rifle and it shoots sub moa out to 500 yards maybe more

I totally agree with you. My smith is only about 15mi. from me and after I talked with him and told him what I wanted that is basically what I did I paid for parts up front as he orderd them in since the lead times were so long . He would have done the same for my buddy, but for some reason he (my friend )was hesitant to have a gun built by someone he didn't know. I think he wanted to see what my rifle was gonna do. I figured if a guy says he will build me a rifle that will do better than 1/2 moa and put it in writing and give me the gun at no cost if it dosn't I'll take a chance. I knew he is a BR shooter and builds all of his own rifles. I didn't find out till later he has won several gun smith awards. He called me yesterday when he got back from Raton N.M. where he finished second in the 1000 yd F class shoot I beleive he said. anywayI took a chance on his work the only regret I have is I am going to shoot the barrel out of this gun sooner than I should because it is so much fun to shoot an accurate rifle.
Good news is I know someone that can rebarrel.Lol

About 150 mi. away a little to far to meet for coffee sometime. I do get up that way sometimes I'll pm you next time I come that way. Too bad we can't use our rifles at home for deer season makes me wish I lived in Wy.

Sounds good. We can use the rifles - on a deer depredation tag. I'm a listed shooter for a farm up by South Bend, but they didn't get the permit until the corn was tall, so the deer had lots of places to hide. The farm is about a mile and a half wide by 3 miles long.

My latest project was a Savage 110 L/A and my smith said, because of Savage's bolt design, all it need is to square the action to maximize full contact of the new barrel and lug.
